Theodore Shapiro's Year One
30-Jun-2009 - Lakeshore Records has released the score for Year One. The story: when a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers (Black and Cera) are banished from their primitive village, they set off on an epic journey through the ancient world. Though the film itself hardly breaks any new comedic ground, it offers up a unique set of opportunities for Theodore Shapiro to develop his technique of providing large-scale, serious, and impressive musical scores for projects —something we've seen previously in Tropic Thunder as well. Where Year One really succeeds is in Shapiro's handling of humour. His score comes in the form of musical deadpan, versus outright slapstick humour, and the result is an intelligent, effective, and entertaining listening experience within the context of the film.
